When player characters gain a level, players must level up their character and submit their updated character sheet to the DM no less than 48 hours before the start of the next session. This can be accomplished in one of two ways:
(1) The player may update their copy of the character’s ‘.dnd4e’ Character Builder file and email it, as an attachment, to the DM no less than 48 hours before the start of the next session; or
(2) The player may compose an email listing the options that have been selected for the character’s new level (powers, feats, abilities, retraining, etc.) and email it to the DM no less than 48 hours before the start of the next session. The DM will update his local copy of ‘.dnd4e’ Character Builder file.
For sessions that begin on Sunday at 1:30 p.m., the DM must receive the leveled-up character data no later than the preceding Friday at 1:30 p.m. Players who fail to meet the deadline must play their character at the same level the character was during the previous game session, without any benefits of leveling up.
